Papers describing high-quality original research in various areas of human-computer interaction are welcome. In light of the recent introduction of natural user interfaces as part of various consumer products, the intention is to give this year workshop a special focus on practical issues of designing HCI systems. Therefore, submissions related to the following topics will be particularly encouraged:


  • vision algorithms robust to light, occlusions, view point, etc.
  • increasing robustness by combining different sensors (e.g. multiple cameras, depth, infrared, inertial, audio)
  • evaluation and comparison of algorithms and systems

Real-time implementation:

  • efficient algorithms and implementation
  • implementation on embedded platforms: field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), programmable digital signal processors (DSPs), graphics processing units (GPUs), and various kinds of heterogeneous multiprocessor devices, etc.
  • performance analysis and comparison (e.g. latency, system power consumption, wireless and other device communication issues)

Other practical issues:

  • automatic adaptation to the user and environment (e.g. on-line learning, auto calibration)
  • design, performance analysis and comparison of human-computer interaction systems (Wizard of Oz and real-system HCI user studies)
  • novel applications and standardization
Selected workshop papers will be considered for a special issue of International Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV).

Demos are also welcome. Latest information about the demos and how to submit your proposals is posted on the demos page.
